In chapter 8. Advanced concepts on page 408:

In section 8.3.1, the $MIRROR variable set in the example is incomplete: it lacks the path to the /debian directory. The assignment should read:

# MIRROR=http://ftp.debian.org/debian

Regardless, you should still use apt-spy to determine a closer mirror!

Feedback

Chad Laity, Cariboo Computer Magazine: Kudos to Martin F. Krafft for putting together one excellent book about the concepts and techniques for the Debian Linux distribution. [...] This is one of those books that goes into complete detail about every aspect of the Debian project. A very well written book with examples and lots of information for any user that wants to learn more about the Debian project or use it as a resource alongside a standard Linux reference book to bootstrap your Linux experience with Debian. I give The Debian System - Concepts and Techniques a big two thumbs up and two toes up!!
